District 1 is now the Southeast Community Organization!
Our district council has a new name! The Southeast Community Organization is your connection to city and county officials. We guide you to local government resources and keep you informed of issues that arise in our neighborhoods. In collaboration with community members in our district, we address issues around business development, the environment, parks, transportation, safety, housing and other matters. We work with you to help you build relationships with your neighbors and create the kind of community you would like to see.
